A 14-year-old girl was raped and killed by unidentified suspect inside their house the other night in
Sindangan, Zamboanga del Norte.

Victim Zia Tanya (not her real name) was found by her nine-year-old brother at around 6:05
p.m. inside their room in Bgy. Goleo, Sindangan.
Reports said that the victim’s brother went to his sister’s room to wake her up but she did
not respond.
He then ran to their father and informed him that his sister was not breathing so they
immediately checked the victim and found out that Zia was already dead.
Upon checking, the victim’s short pants was rolled down below her knees, making investigators
believed that the victim was raped before she was killed.
